We repair and monitor approximately 15.9 miles of city sidewalk; mow, and landscape over 50+ acres of city parks, remove, trim, and replant trees. We are responsible for the installation, replacement, and maintenance of all City Street signage to ensure compliance with MUTCD regulations, stripe roads, and parking areas. We maintain and repair the City’s storm drainage system and erosion issues in the right of ways.
